Angry Brand new truck+ 2 trees=road trip to kansas City

well we had a grass fire the other day and the truck slid down a hill into a tree (damage on driver side) then while winching the truck up the hill the cable snapped and slid down the 100+ foot hill into another tree so needless to say we (probably me) have to take it to Wies in Kansas city to get a new flatbed and storage compartments put onto it.







and in this pic below the box is supposed to be level








and the force from slidin down the hill and nailing the driver side back bumper on the tree pinched the diamond plate on the passanger side


it looks alot worse in person

OK, no more parking on hills for y'all. Sorry to hear that. Did you get any video of it? I bet it would be funny as heck to go back and watch it.

Sorry to hear about your luck.

Back in my younger days my friend (pot head) was a vff and rolled a tanker truck after taking it and washing it. Needless to say he got what he deserved drug tested and fired.

Those boxes and bed look aluminum just take it apart and hammer it back flat then re polish it.

this story reminds me of anther story. my dad owned a plumbing company and one of his drunk employees got drunk and flipped our F-750 tanker truck into this poor old lady's yard. 20,000 gallons of S*** went all over the place. i guess we can look back and laugh at it now.(after we had to clean it up) ha ha.

sorry to here about your truck bud. stuff like that happens
